PICTURES of royal wedding celebrations from home and abroad have continued to flood in after the event.

Queen Margaret’s School in Escrick, near York, remained open despite the special bank holiday, but the students and staff still managed to celebrate in style, and watch the ceremony on a giant projector screen in the school’s theatre, and televisions throughout the school.

The students also enjoyed a wedding breakfast with a three-tiered wedding cake which was then donated to three charities, the Derwent House Residential Care Home, St Leonard’s Hospice, and Martin House Children’s Hospice.

Youngsters at Sheriff Hutton Pre-School Playgroup designed crowns to stage their own “royal” wedding, including a full reception and wedding cake.

Celebrations were also held by residents of Earswick, Pasture Close in Skleton, and Byron Drive Acomb, and by Osbaldwick and Murton Brownies.

The festivities were not confined to Britain as one ex-Bishopthorpe woman now living abroad, former editor’s PA at The Press, Sky Ferrey, organised a royal wedding party at her home on the Costa del Sol.
